Military law supercedes state law, so Fort Hood is not bound by the State of Texas that prohibits breed-specific law. DogsBite.org has a section within Legislating Dogs that lists military bases that have adopted breed-specific law. This list continues to grow. Sadly, after a rottweiler mauling in 2005 and a pit bull attack that led to death in 2007, Camp Lejeune (North Carolina) still refuses to adopt breed-specific law.
